Systemic mycoses are fungal infections that disseminate from a portal of entry. In this course we will cover the most common systemic mycoses seen in small animal practice - blastomycosis, histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, and cryptococcosis. Clinical signs, diagnostic tests, and treatment options for each organism will be reviewed. Specific differences unique to each organism will be highlighted including geographic location, long term complications, and limitations of the available diagnostic testing.

Discussions will begin on the start date of the course and will continue for 7 days following the last real time session.
